to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi

away their money. host: let's go to griffin, independent in michigan. caller: i keep hearing about the secretary of warren buffett. i do taxes. i figure if the secretary has a standard deduction, she would have to have an income of 90,000 a year. that would equal his 17.4%. using the word secretary, which is 50,000 on average at best in michigan and using that as an example is very disingenuous. i would like to hear it stop. host: we have a comment on twitter. echoing a the sentiments of a caller a moment ago. caller: i think it is unfair as far as the taxes that the rich pay, which is really nothing. i do not know if anyone has ever watched, because my grandkids watched the sweet 16 parties. it is nothing for them to spend $100,000 for their kids parties and then on top of that really expensive cars. the rich do not fight wars. their children do not go to fight wars. they should pay extra, because we are making them safe and allowing them to have their free will and the expense of the lives. and they can appear -- paid $20,000 for a pair of shoes. it is unfair. that could be a sal
